|Hi! I am a big fan of poetry, so that will be my main focus here.|
I run away in my red dress
I feel like my heart is a mess
No one should go through what I just did
To you, a goodbye, I bid
Start your day with a clear head
So that, at the end of the day, you can easily go to bed
How do you do this, you may ask?
By smiling for a while; that shouldn't be a hard task
If you take away my wings, how can I fly?
If you take away my thoughts, how can I think?
If you take away my things, how can I play?
If you take away the website, how can I see the link?
I'll stand by you even if you don't stand by me too
I'll stand by you even if you're sad face turns me away
I'll stand by you even when you say shoo
I'll stand by you even if you don't want me to stay
I'll stand by you even if life gets hard
I'll stand by you even if you feel like I'm standing too much by you
I'll stand by you and tell you "it'll get easier. This is the hard part"
I'll stand by you with the hopes that, one day, you'll do the same for me: you'll stand by me through and through
I'll stand by you no matter how tough it gets
I'll stand by you even if you cry a lot
I'll stand by you even if my shoulders get wet
I'll stand by you and tell you you're still hot
I'll stand by you n...
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
And it also makes you live a little longer
I need to break away
I need to not stay
I need to stray
I need to do this today
But I have so many reasons to not break away
I have so many reasons why I should stay
I have so many reasons why I can't stray
I have so many reasons why I can't do this today
So I don't break away from the pack; I stay
So I don't stray from the pack; I can't do this today
You see, I don't want to break away
I don't want to stray
Wants and needs are so different from one another
They don't go hand in hand like sisters and brothers
They just bother each other
And they never get along which is also a bother
Because of you I stand on my own
Because of you I don't sit on a throne
Because of you I sit alone
Because of you I'm afraid to groan
Because of you I am afraid
Because of you, in relationships with me, not many people stayed
Because of you I feel like I fade
Because of you I don't feel like I'm great
Because of you I don't know what to do
Because of you I feel like I can't get through
Because of you I feel like I'm stuck with you
Because of you I cry on cue
Because of you
This is my fight song
You may sing along
But it's my fight song you're singing, FYI
So please don't sing it if you don't want to, or if you're shy
Every day, there's another battle to be won
Every day, I wake up and that's one of the jobs that are done
Every day, I say to myself a prayer of thanks to The One Above
Every day, I hope that all the people stay alive; especially, the ones I love
But every day I fight a battle no one knows about
Every day, I shout an inner shout
Every day, I stand bravely in front of everyone
And every day, I somehow get my jobs done
Every day, I manage to fight it through till the end
Every day, the rules of my life, I bend
Every day, I sit here hoping for sal...
I will always love you
No matter life's hue
Be it green or yellow
I'll be a good fellow
I will always love you
No matter if you do too
Just because you cannot climb
Doesn't mean you're out of time
Take a moment or two to relax
And you'll feel better than an ax
Just because your climb hasn't finished yet
Doesn't mean you lose all bets
It just means there's more climbing left
I hope that doesn't leave you bereft
Just because you haven't completed it
Doesn't mean that this mountain isn't, for you, a good fit
It just means you haven't completed this task
So, why don't you go ahead and do that, I ask?
There are ten things I hate about you
I wonder if you care enough to know that this is true
1. You don't care about me
That is easy to see
2. You treat me like I'm not here
That shows that you "care"
3. You don't put away the pail for the hand
This, I don't understand
4. You hurt my mother and that hurts me
So, don't come back and let her free
5. You don't say excuse me
That has been going on constantly
6. You irritate me nonstop
And that doesn't cause me to jump, skip, or hop
7. I don't look forward to seeing you home
I'd rather you find somewhere else to roam
8. You constantly say goodbye when you leave
We can't answer all the time. I just want you to leave and not come back. I don'...
I hand you a present, timidly
With uncertainty in my eyes
I'm uncertain about so many things
But, mostly, I'm uncertain if you'll like the surprise
I give you the small pink box
Not expecting a thank you
But what I get surprises me
As much as I hope the present surprises you too
Your expression says it all
A thank you would have been nice
But since your expression says it all
That will suffice
First, let's start with love, because that's the beginning of all things on this earth
Then, we can talk about wars; they have been here since birth
They haven't been here since the beginning of creation
And they don't cause us elation
The saying "All's fair in love and war" might be correct
Because, they do, us, protect
Love protects us from getting hurt while wars hurt us to protect us
Both tend to make a fuss
Love is the beginning of everything
If you love someone, or something, you'll "water" it until it blossoms into a being
While wars do us harm
And they do tend to cause many alarms
So, all in all, I say that not everything is fair in love and war
But both of them do protect us, for ...
To the dad that doesn't care
I know you're out there
I've seen you around here
And I want you to know you don't make us cheer
You don't make us cheer because you don't care about us
And when I say that, I am, in a way, making a fuss
Because I want you to be on the same bus
And you're not, so what's there to trust?
Since you don't care about your child
He or she will become very wild
Because they don't have a father to look up to and that's not right; their wildness will be more than mild
And then you'll have a child that's beguiled
If you don't want to see something, close your eyes
And if you do want to see something, open them, because you're in for a surprise
You're in for a surprise when you open them
And when you open them, you'll see a gem
The gem will be your child
And your reaction will be more than mild
Because you're always happy to see your children
When you see them, you give them a hug, or more like ten
This ends the song
I hope it wasn't too long
I hope you understood it
And, if you didn't, read it over again bit by bit
Everyone is in a box
No matter what type
Be it red, yellow, or green
It's always been the "hype"
You're considered to be in a box if you're rich or poor
You're considered to be in a box if you're religious or not
You're considered to be in a box if you're smart or dumb
You're considered to be in a box if you're hot or not as hot
So, basically, you're considered to be in a box, no matter what
Be it you who created the box or someone who isn't you
The best way to get out of that box is to realize you're in one
And then, you can be whomever you want to
My Father Up Above has shown me so many things
Starting at birth, He has shown me that, good news, there's always more to bring
When I was born, I didn't breathe right away
It's actually a miracle that I'm alive, and that's all I can say
So, thank you, Dad, for being my Dad
And I know deep inside, that You're at all not bad
I'm grateful to You that I'm alive
And I'm glad I did survive
I feel like some people are locked in a cage
They know who the person is who locked them in
But they never feel like they're on the same page
They never feel like they can win
The only person who has the key won't give it to them
Because the person thinks they don't deserve to be set free
But I know they are a gem
And that they do deserve to just be
The prisoner could be either gender in a marriage
The person in prison is the other person who's married to the prisoner
It's hard to let them free once there's a baby in a carriage
It's also hard to let them free if the prisoner isn't a listener
He or she doesn't listen to the other person's pleas
He or she doesn't care enough to listen to the...
Mother's aren't here to be your friend
But, for you, the rules, they will bend
Mother's aren't here to take your footsteps for you
But they are here to guide you through
Mother's aren't here to help you or hear you groan
But they are here to empower you so you can do it on your own
Mother's aren't here to be there for you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week
But they are here to hear you out when you want to speak
Mother's aren't here to do it all
But they are here for you when you fall
Mother's aren't here for everything
But, to you, they would glady bring, and do, anything
So, when you see your mother, try to thank her for doing her best
She's here to do just that and not better than...
There can't be life without death
There can't be black without white
There can't be lying without truth
And you can't have day without night
There can't be love without hate
There can't be a smile without a frown
There can't be happy without sad
And there can't be up without down
There can't be heaven without earth
There can't be a mother without a father
There can't be old if there isn't young
And there can't be a sister without a brother
There can't be a world without opposites
You may think some things don't need to be on this earth
But, if you don't have black without white, there wouldn't be a world
And we'd only know black since birth
You took away what I had
You made me feel very bad
I don't blame anyone but you
For doing what you do
You took my innocence away
I'm no longer as brave as I once was; I'm no longer brave today
I wish you'd just leave me alone
But I have to live with you for the rest of my life and that makes me moan and groan
Imagine you're alone in your own mind
What in there do you find?
Do you find someone talking to you?
Or do you find an empty "chair" with nothing in it too?
Tag it "inner mind" and comment below when done.
I want to make you proud
I want to make you shout out loud
I want to make you happy
But what about me?
I want to make me proud
I want to make me shout out loud
I want to make me happy too
But what about you?
Labeling a person is NOT the same thing as labeling clothing
It's an entirely different ballgame
And some labels, when you label a human, do sting
Remember, it's NEVER the same
Labeling humans as crazy will only make them crazier
Labeling humans as insane will not help make them less "insane"
And labeling humans as lazy will only make them lazier
Labeling anyone will not make them feel like sunshine after rain
Why? Because once you put a label on someone, you're making A: the person feel bad
And B: you're making them feel like "this is how someone views me. Okay. I'll turn into this"
It's not right and it makes me sad
But it's always been like this, so there's nothing really to miss
Do you remember the first step you ever took?
Do you remember when it happened and it felt like the ground shook?
Do you remember when you smiled to a camera for the first time?
Do you remember your first rhyme?
Do you remember when you made your first friend?
Do you remember when you, the rules, bent?
Do you remember the first time you laughed at something funny?
Do you remember the first time you saw a bunny?
Do you remember sitting in one of your parents' lap?
Do you remember when you listened to your first rap?
Do you remember when you had your first kiss?
Do you remember feeling amiss?
Do you remember not feeling well when you were young?
Do you remember all the songs you ever sung?
I'm blind to you; I cannot see
Around me is wrapped something that makes it harder for me to see you
I wish I can be, of this thing, free
But I know we're only playing a game here. I know that to be true
What I don't know is that you have it too
What I don't know is that you're playing this game with me as well
They haven't informed me that you're wearing the blinds that also block your view
But the game is nearing its end and I can almost here the sound of the bell
"I promise I will not lie to you"
You did lie to me
"I promise I won't hurt you"
You hurt something you can't see
You lied and hurt my heart
And that's what tears me apart
Not that you did the thing you promised not to do
You said you wouldn't lie or hurt me, and you did that too
So, who are you?
Someone who lies and hurts and does not speak the absolute truth?
How could I not have seen that?
I must have been blind to it
I see that now, though, with full clarity
And I see we're not a good fit
We laugh; we cry
But, inside, we die
We pretend everything's a-okay
But, meanwhile, we missed the sunshine's rays
Inside, we feel so bad
But we don't want people to know we're sad
So, we pretend everything's a-okay
But, meanwhile, we missed the sunshine's rays
I can walk
I can talk
I can sing a song
I can play along
I can do whatever's needed
But, remember, I'm going to stop if I bleed
I'm only human and I can't take more than I can take
Give me all you got, but I can only take one mistake
I'm only human and I can't handle more than I can handle
I'm like a fire on a candle
I can burn only for so long
I'm not that strong
So, don't expect me to burn longer then I can
In this weather, surely you understand
I can easily burn out, so please don't expect my "fire" to last
And, remember, I'm only as human as human can be, so forget what you learnt in the past
I can take so much until I've had enough
Unlike the surface of the road, I'm not that rough
